Claypaky’s Scenius Spot is being championed for its superior output, colour and optical quality by lighting designer Dan Williams who is using the fixture as the main lighting workhorse on British rockers Skunk Anansie’s current European tour ‘Anarchytecture’. Lighting supplier for the tour, Buckinghamshire-based Siyan, recommended the spot fixtures to work alongside the production’s dominant LED video package, that includes both floor and flown LED screens.
“The main issue with working with such a strong video element is getting a fixture that is bright enough to stand out against the LED screens,” says Dan.
“The Scenius Spot has absolutely no problem with this.” In addition, Dan is using one strategically placed Claypaky A.leda B-EYE K20LED wash, beam and effects fixture.
The B-EYE K20 sits upstage centre behind lead singer Skin where it delivers majestic silhouetted air effects that complement the onstage LED screens’ evolving graphic display and the dramatic movements of the singer.
